The musical partnership between Alasdair Fraser, long regarded as Scotland's premier fiddle ambassador, and the young Californian cellist Natalie Haas, is the fulfilment of a long-standing musical dream for Fraser, whose cutting-edge musical explorations encouraged him to find a cellist who could help him return the cello to its historical role as the rhythmic heart of Scottish dance music. "Alasdair Fraser is recognized throughout the world not only as one of the finest fiddle-players Scotland has ever produced, but also as someone whose name is synonymous with the vibrant cultural renaissance which is transforming the Scottish musical scene."

CLANGOR! by MARGARET LENG TAN (SING) Whether playing the tin can, the jack-in-the-box or the toy hammer and rattle, Leng Tan fulfills her mentor John Cage’s philosophy that you can make music with just about anything. Suitable for ages 8 to 108, Clangor! is a diminutive music-theatre experience of nostalgia and humour performed exclusively on all manner of toy instruments. From toy pianos and bicycle bells to a hand-cranked music box, Margaret Leng Tan treats them as real instruments in keeping with the French artist Marcel Duchamp’s statement, “poor tools require better skills.” Since moving to New York, Leng Tan has become a major force within the American avant-garde, as well as being the first woman to earn a doctorate from Julliard. “the queen of the toy piano” THE NEW YORK TIMES

Depedro (SPAIN) With OSCAR JIMENEZ (AUS/COLOMBIA)

Spanish singer/songwriter/ guitarist Jairo Zavala formed Depedro as a solo project after years spent performing with Calexico, Los Coronas, Vacazul and 3000 Hombres. Zavala grew up in Madrid listening to 'the pre-WWII songs of his grandparents and playing the music that his Peruvian father brought home from his travels to Latin America and Africa. He credits these influences in shaping his own style of guitar playing, pulled from blues, folk, flamenco, afrobeat, latin, and rock. “Hailing from Madrid, Spain, this acoustic folk rock band will get you to sit up and listen… Depedro is certainly a band to take notice of.” CMJ

Murder ballads sit alongside outer-space versions of up-beat homesickness, Leadbelly cries on the shoulder of Hank Williams, while the horror of stolen love gone wrong strides from one side of the globe to another. “...one of our country’s best and hardest to define songwriters ..” GROOVEGUIDE (NZ)

Bombino (Niger/Africa)

With EMMA DONOVAN AND THE PUTBACKS

Niger born desert-psych guitarist Omara 'Bombino' Moctar’s dazzling live performance and virtuosity have led notable music critics to compare him to Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana, Neil Young, and Jerry Garcia. Bombino is a member of the Tuareg Ifoghas tribe, a nomadic people descended from the Berbers of North Africa. During his lifetime, the Tuareg people have fought the Niger government to secure their rights on numerous occasions, causing Bombino and his family to flee several times.

CINEMA PROGRAM at the MECHANICS INSTITUTE Mongolian Bling

A Family Affair

Forget about nomads and monks! It’s hip-hop that’s making Mongolia move in the 21st century. Mongolian Bling jumps into the thriving music scene in the capital Ulaanbaatar and follows stars as they rap nationwide with their crew, cars, and jewels. Beyond this bling however, lies a failed democracy and a dying ancient culture that the elders mourn the loss of. While many artists still aspire to the West, a handful are using hip-hop to try and salvage their country, bringing Mongolia’s rich musical history into their modern beats and rhymes. mongolianbling.com

A Family Affair is an intimate portrait of the famous Xylouris family and their sacred bonds with the musical tradition of Crete.

Saturday 7 March

8.30pm | Mechanics Institute

Directed by Angeliki Aristomenopoulou, the film follows three generations of the family who uphold and pass on the vibrant tradition of Cretan music, performing ceaselessly to followers across the world. afamilyaffair.gr

COUNIHAN GALLERY IN BRUNSWICK Song for the stage, the captives and the line of production Hermione Merry and Henriette Kassay-Schuster

With Her Feet Off the Ground Barbara Brugola, Clare Rae, Kawita Vatanajyankur, Heidi Yardley Curated by Simone Hine

27 FEBRUARY TO 29 MARCH

27 FEBRUARY TO 29 MARCH

Song for the stage, the captives and the line of production is a three channel video shot in three iconic Moreland locations; Coburg Drive-In, Pentridge Prison Village and the former Kodak factory site in which a lone figure stands on a small stage with a scenic backdrop singing unaccompanied into the night. The project is inspired by nostalgia, theatricality, and local archaeology whilst mourning the imminent burial of Melbourne’s history beneath the swell of urban development.

With Her Feet Off the Ground brings together the work of four female artists that depict the female form in a state of flux. In the absence of a cultural language that fully defines the female subject, the artists in this exhibition depict women entangled, suspended and immersed. This literal state of flux acts as a metaphor for the ambiguous and undefined spaces that feminine identity occupies in an incomplete cultural knowledge.

This work has been supported by the Australia Council for the Arts, Emerging Artist Development Grant – Visual Arts 2013. Hermione Merry & Henriette Kassay-Schuster • Song for the stage, the captives and the line of production #2 2014 Video Still Image • Courtesy of Rachel Edward
